We are working with an education provider who is looking into creating resources to help you homeschool your children.

We are looking for 10 pairs of parents and their children aged 11-16 who would join us for a 1 hour informal research conversation on homeschooling with our trusted research consultant in the Mumsnet offices in Kentish Town, London. We have added several new dates. These conversations will be taking place on the 21st, 22nd, 23rd and 24th of January.

In order to participate, the child you are bringing to the research must be homeschooled and aged 11 to 16. This research is organised in line with the highest standard of MRS conduct.

All interviewed pairs will receive £60 incentive for their combined participation which you will receive on the day, and your travel expenses will be covered up to a reasonable amount (please keep proof of the cost of your travel for reimbursement purposes).

I last did market research in London 16 years ago and got £100 for an hour then.

£60 is pretty bloody mean MN.

£30 an hour per person - it’s two people. Agree not v much for a commercial thing. Travel will be another chunk of time/money unless they’re on your doorstep.

Why pairs? What about single parents who home educate? 🤔

FredaFrogspawn Tue 26-Nov-19 20:18:35

I meant pairs as in kid and parent. Don’t think it needs to parents.

Oops two

Hi everyone hope your well. I think I’m having a thick moment and need help to get me to understand/realise I actually am. So I had unprotected sex from 28-3 October and also had 2 periods. I had negative pregnancy tests before my November period.My last period was on the 5th November to the 9th November, I then had unprotected sex on the 13th and positive tests from 11dpo. Can this be right. Clear blue says 1-2 weeks.

FredaFrogspawn Tue 26-Nov-19 21:30:33

Why don’t you start your own these? This is not the place for this problem.

FredaFrogspawn Tue 26-Nov-19 21:31:03

Sorry - thread.

You’ll get better responses on that.

I want to forward this to a friend that fits the description - but just wanted to clarify are there travel expenses on top of the £60 or is that it? We are only an hour from London but the train fare is still ££ so I’m embarrassed to forward it on if it’s £60 all in!

Hi @itsabongthing,
We have just updated the thread with this information. Each pair will receive £60 and their travel expenses will be covered on top of this smile

We are looking for 10 pairs of parents and their children

Well this sounds very exclusionary - they only want to market their products to homeschooled children in two parent families? hmm

Borgen Sat 30-Nov-19 13:16:20

I think it's a parent-child pair not a pair of parents.

WendyMoiraAngelaDarling Sun 01-Dec-19 08:46:30

I home ed a sixteen year old but £60 isn't worth it tbh. We could be off doing something much more fun or worthwhile in that time!

DarkerShrimpVase Sun 01-Dec-19 18:27:20

Again with the London-centricity! Not interested in anyone else’s opinion? On anything?

LonginesPrime Sun 01-Dec-19 18:38:18

Borgen, I see - they might have meant '10 pairs of parents and children'.

Although in a way, that's even more worrying if it was drafted by the education provider in question!

What about families that are unable to travel. There are a significant number of families that home school SEN children and would not be able to attend in person due to mobility or mental health barriers. Can these families attend by Skype or phone?

I'm out of London so are we excluded ?

Nigglenaggle Thu 16-Jan-20 20:21:40

Mumsnet it's more than a little irritating that you insist on the term home schooling when surely you know full well that home education is the term preferred by the people doing it. Do our views and preferences not matter?
